"Why strive for grandeur in living quarters when true elegance lies not in size, and the true essence of beauty is not measured by quantity?" Throughout history, Chinese people have not had a fixed set of rules for their living spaces. The wealthy may have grand buildings while the poor may have just a small room.
Some may reside in bustling cities, while others may hide away in the countryside. However, there is always one essential quality that a traditional Chinese living space should possess, and that is elegance and grace.
